What is Smart View?
Smart View is a comprehensive tool for accessing and integrating
Oracle Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) and Business
Intelligence (BI) content from Microsoft Office products. Using Smart View, you can view, import, update, distribute, and circulate
data in Microsoft Excel, Word, Outlook, and PowerPoint.
Smart View Capabilities include:
Smart View is ideal for users requiring an integrated environment with their data:
Predefined Form Interaction - EPM application users that execute predefined input/reporting forms find Smart View a convenient
way of completing tasks within the Office environment. These users would be planners or consolidators who want to work in the
Excel environment either for consistent experience compared to the web application or to tie other spreadsheet-based models into their process.
Reporting - this is another dimension of Smart View usage which leverages the capabilities of EPM data retrieves. Once
the data is available within Office, users can create reports as needed based on a combination of data sources.
Access to Pre-Created Content - another area of use is for importing pre-created content such as charts or grids from Oracle
Hyperion Financial Reporting and OBIEE to PowerPoint, Word, or Excel. The imported content can be refreshed from the Office environment.
